Spring, I will invite you In

I could not Welcome Winter as She Knocked Upon My Door.
Was I  unneighborly by not  inviting her in.
I told her not to come here anymore,
to take her big white snow flakes and howling wind
and leave.
And now I watch through the window,
the snow whirling round,
I watch as it seems to fall faster and faster,
falling quickly to the ground.
There was actually brown grass just yesterday,
and now as I look at the blanket of white,
Yesterday seems so far away.
It seems so odd that this all changed just over night.
When next Spring knocks upon my door.
I  will invite her in and sing her happy praise.
I will be so Neighborly that she will have to stay.
So now I sit and watch the snow with an ear to the door.
Waiting for Spring more than I ever did before.
I can't wait to say Hello.

  10. Hello Cinner! What beautiful prose you have shared here. We have so little snow around here and so many hot, hot days, that to prolong winter would be a dream come true. Of course, our winters are pretty mild. So happy you came by for a visit and left a sweet comment. Thank you for the smile! ~ Angela

  15. Isn't it the pits to think the snow is behind us for this season and have some spring like days only to have it snow again. Happened here and hubby had trouble with his mood because of it. I hope we are all enjoying the outdoor activities really soon.
